Time to kick back and relax? Not with Freshers on the horizon...
June 2019 - Not that we want to worry anyone but you have started to plan for Freshers, haven't you? Your student members might be tripping off soon to enjoy a long summer break but we know that you'll just be getting started on plans for the busiest time of year. So we're pleased to bring you details of summer training sessions timed to get your team ready with a skills refresh and top tips to make the next few months go smoothly.
We've also welcomed another new client to the MSL family and are very pleased to share the Edinburgh University Sports' Union success story. We're always on the look out for good news and interesting projects to share with our community - if you've been working on something you're expecially proud of and want to shout about it, let us know!
We look forward to speaking to you soon,

Server upgrades offer increased performance and security
